Podcast Episode: Can “trauma informed care” help eliminate disparities?
Physical therapist Shawn Tucker provides care that is informed by adverse childhood events (ACEs), trauma and toxic stress, all of which can contribute to the development of chronic health conditions in adulthood. Trauma informed care seeks to address the root causes of unhealthy behavior by helping to resolve previously hidden and unexplained conflicts. Do populations who experience more ACEs have higher prevalence of chronic conditions, and can toxic stress help explain health disparities in the obesity pandemic? With Rolf Taylor.
